On 24 March 2019, Penguin Classics is launching Happy Reading, its first ever pop-up bookshop in Shoreditch to celebrate reading for pleasure and the special books that impact our lives.
Showcasing the range and diversity of world literature, the space will display a single copy of each of the 1,257 books in the world-renowned Penguin Classics list. Happy Reading is both a shop and a cultural space for readers to explore, discuss and challenge the literary canon.
During the evenings, the space will host a range of events and workshops. Confirmed events include a Mother’s Day candle making workshop with Literati & Light, a panel discussion on happiness in partnership with Refinery29 and an event focussing on women in the canon with Penguin Live. Tickets can be bought here.
